Get Healthy Lifestyle with Working 60+ Hours
‘The greatest wealth is health’
Feeling overworked reduces your productivity. It is hard to stay in shape when we are too busy to make healthy choices. In this article we will show you how to tackle long hours at work using the basic conventional tactics we often forget.
Pen down your working hours and your travelling time to start creating a healthy lifestyle.
Now, down with the plan:-
1.1 A clear simple diet plan
A healthy breakfast should be your number one priority. Have healthy food rich in fibers, protein and fruits and vegetables. Don’t fall for the pressure of your peers to overdo your junk food.Have a healthy snack instead. Avoid the intake of aerated drinks and too much caffeine. Instead drink plenty of water. Adding a slice of lemon to your water can help if you find water boring and mainstream. Did you know, water also helps increasing your concentration?
1.2 Short workout plans
Having 60+ working hours a week is the best excuse not to exercise. And that’s where we come in, to pitch exercise in your workout schedule
- Work out when you are high on energy and it is easy for you. Mornings are the best time of the day to sweat off.
- Workout at home if you can’t make it to the gym. Short and intense workouts are the best kind.
Make sure not to exercise when you are low on energy. But keep up with the exercise routine with a break every now and then.
1.3 Quit being a night owl/ Make sleep your friend
“Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy wealthy and wise” ~Benjamin Franklin. We have this quote embedded in our system right from our Kindergarten days. Yet knowing and doing this are two different things. Not getting enough sleep accumulates fats in the body. A sound sleep of 6-7 hours daily is a must.
You are rather an insomniac?
- Start a pre-bed routine like reading or stretching or anything that relaxes you one hour prior to your bed time.
- Use a smart alarm clock that senses your light sleep because we all agree that waking up from the deepest of point of our sleep makes us grumpy.
1.4 Have fun
‘All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy’. Don’t just go to work and come home having no fun at work at all. Take short breaks during the day, have a laugh with your colleagues. For the weekends make time for movies and friends or maybe find a hobby.
Leaning towards a healthy lifestyle by prioritizing our health is always the best choice. Working 60+ hours a week and having a balanced lifestyle is not as absurd as it seems by incorporating the right program in our routine.
